A clockwork toy Carter Paterson delivery van made by Triang as part of the Minic Vehicles range, model 22M.

The van has a red cab, dark green haulage area with curved upper side edges, silver runningboards with a Shell petrol can, and silver wheel hubs and white tyres.

The Carter Paterson name is emblazoned along the upper side as white dark-outlined text against a bright red strip, and below this there is an image of a (desert?) scene with orange ground and a yellow sky, with a grey elephant and the slogan "Send your trunk ahead".
